Demographics


Population
The population of Valentine Z over the years from 1985 (pre-Valentian era), to 2000 (establishment of Valentine Z), to 2055 (Colonisation of Mars), to 2070 (current year), can be seen on these two graphs. Note that the conventional old Earth years are still used for the graphs in order to avoid confusion.


Population Graph from 1985 to 2070.

The first generation of Valentians encompasses the survivors that made it through the nuclear war, either from their own shelters, or from Valentijn’s random choosing. These comprises of 500,000 - 550,000 people, all taken from various nations, ethnicity, race, religion, and languages. As a result, the Valentians are multicultural, multinational people, with inclusiveness and acceptance for one another in mind, after a month or two of unrest that was brought about from their motherlands brainwashing these people to hate the other hemisphere (i.e. West or East).



Population – Nationality

The Nationality Pie Chart.

Rather than going for readability, this graph represents, as a proof-of-concept, that Valentine Z consists of hundreds or even thousands of nationalities and ethnic groups. Each of the ethnic groups and nationalities are spread out evenly, as according to General Valentijn’s plan. The Indeterminates are the ones that either are hard to define their nationality, or they might not even have one. One such example is Clarissa, amongst many other robots, since while they do have a place or country of assembly or build, they do not follow a certain ethnicity due to their status as metallic robots, though they enjoy the same rights as the human Valentians.

Population – Ethnicity

Since Nationality is a rather poor source of information when it comes to origins, Ethnicity is also considered. However, due to the sheer size of the charts and pie graphs involved, a convenient table is made in order for easier readability. The groups commonly identified as "ethnic groups" (as opposed to ethno-linguistic phyla, national groups, racial groups or similar). Smaller groups (i.e. less than 100,000) are often indigenous peoples. Do note that these statistical figures are much different from the pre-Valentian era figures, since in Valentine Z, the ethnic groups are free from discrimination and are free to practice their own culture and grow out of their own accord. The even distribution was present at first, but overtime, it was obvious that some ethnic groups and nationalities grow faster.

The population size of Valentians by Ethnicity can be found in the chart below, accurate as of January 2040.

Population – Citizenship-Foreigner Status

The Citizenship Pie Chart.

The third pie chart and classification of data offers better readability, as well as explaining the percentage of the demographics in a brief but concise manner. After the terraforming was done and everyone united under one roof, the original 500,000+ people are known as Valentians, regardless of their race, language, or religion. While they are allowed to practice their own traditions and customs without any interference, the Valentians began to call themselves just that and in fact were rather comfortable with the label. The Valentian citizenship is an easy process, though for now, a Valentian is defined as:

  • Being originally chosen as one of the 500,000 persons by General Valentijn himself.

  • One of the original survivors of the old-world apocalypse, or a descendant of a survivor.

  • Having obtained Permanent Residence for at least 4 years, AND with the fit and young adults (both male and females) having been served in a year-long conscription.

  • Having contributed to one of the many state-run industries for at least 5 years.

It is important to note that these conditions are not exhaustive, and that it can change anytime, though mostly for the better. Under the Valentian Law, it is legal for its citizens to hold dual (or more) citizens to other worlds and world’s countries, since the Valentians are aware of the parallel nature of the multiverse, as well as having access to dimensional portals should one desires to travel outside of Valentine Z. The Valentian Citizenship itself is easy to apply, and only takes one’s fingerprint, iris scan, a VIC (Valentian Identity Card), and past criminal records (if any) in order to apply for it.

Language
Valkyrie Sprak – De Jazyk ov de Ljudi / The Language of the People.

Valentine Z, being a multicultural, multinational, and multiracial supernation, is committed to preserving the languages of the old world, as well as the possible evolution of the new ones. For governmental function, as well for official business with other parallel worlds, English Language is still used as the standard for the human-populated worlds, as well as with some extra-terrestrial races and civilizations.

While the Valentians are free to use their own language as they please, the official functions and most of the labels and graphical interfaces run on Valkyrie Sprak by default - a conlang that was proposed by the combined effort of Vice Foresittend Jolyn, and Lead Ambassador Germaine, in order to bring the world languages closer in on supercombined language. The result is a language that has the grammatical structure of English, as well as the nouns, adjectives, and verbs changing according to the subject-based nature of it. For instance, Biology-based words will either be in Russian, Ukrainian, or Croatian, while anything concerning the concept of mechanics of physics will use German, owing to the engineering-oriented nature of the populace in the olden world.

More details about Valkyrie Sprak can be found here:

Valkyrie Språk (formerly known as Valerian, Val-li-ree-yan) is a constructed quilt language of English-Luxembourgish, and in turn made up of several other languages. The languages used depend on the subject of the word in the sentences. Its syntax structure is of Modern English.

So far,

1. Physics and Time use Dutch and Flemish ( Vlaams ).

2. Infrastructure, Transportation and Mechanics will use German.

3. Videography and Photography terms (including movie terms) in Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk) and Danish.

4. Mathematics in French, Portuguese, Romanian.

5. Chemistry terminology in Indonesian, Malay and Amharic.

6. Biology, Botany and Zoology are in Russian, Ukrainian and Croatian.

7. Linguistic, Knowledge-based terms and Literature are in Czech, Polish and Slovak.

8. Law and Politics are in Luxembourgish and Latin.

9. Anthropology and Sociology are in Icelandic, Swedish and Maori.

10. Economics are in Turkish, Hungarian and Slovenian.

11. Military terms in Georgian, Lithuanian, Latvian and Armenian.

12. Religion in Burmese, Sanskrit and Pali.

13. Feelings, emotions (Happiness, Sadness, Anger, etc.) and “intangible qualities” are in French, Spanish, Gaelic (Irish) and Japanese.

14. Food and Home Economics are in Tamil, Punjabi and Swahili.

15. Computer/Tech terminology is in Finnish, Hindi and Anglo-Saxon English (a.k.a. Old English).

16. Music/Audio terminology are in Esperanto, Nepali and Italian.

17. Sports in Estonian, Greek and Serbian.

18. Geography/Buildings in Xhosa, Afrikaans and Welsh.

19. Art and Entertainment terms in Chinese and Korean, and Mongolian.

20. Fashion terms (such as clothing) are in and Khmer, Vietnamese and Thai.

21. History in Arabic, Persian and Hebrew.

22. Grammatical articles, conversational words and basically the main frame are mainly in Luxembourgish, Dutch, Icelandic and English.

23. Vulgarities are in any language… Feel free to use your own colorful vocabulary.

24. Any other languages can be inserted, be it ancient or modern, fictional or non-fictional.

In an event where there’s no classification or the classification is ambiguous for that word, any closest language may be used. E.g. Heart can be either under
Biology or Feelings, depending on context. All the non-Latin languages (i.e. those that do not use latin alphabets) will be Romanized. Nouns are capitalised just
like German. Machine translations are made more accurate, since only 1-4 word are translated per language.

For example,

English: Your lust for love is immeasurable.
Valerian: Ihr Lussuria fyrir Amor est onmetelijk.
Just one out of hundreds of possible translations.

English: Valentine Z’s country has 6 million people.
Valerian: Valentine Z’s Landsort quod six milioane Lidé.

English: Hello ! Thank you for trying to reach me. Unfortunately, I am not free at the moment. Send me a message.
Valerian: Ahoj ! Merci fir yrittää ze pahunch mech. Ar an drochuair, Ech sinn net liber momenteel. Ærendian mech un Viesti.

English: Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them. ~Dion Boucicault
Valerian: Muži praten van doden Tijd, terwijl Zäit mallaŭte uergt Ils. ~Dion Boucicault

English: It’s the journey in-between that makes it fun.
Valerian: Het is der Reis zwischendurch datt provést To spraoi.

Conversation 1 - Clarissa and Clementine

English Language.

Valkyrie Sprak.

Clarissa: Hello, Clementine!

Clementine: Hello to you, Clarissa! How have you been, my old friend?

Clarissa: I’m fine, thanks for asking! How about you?

Clementine: Yes, I have been fine too. I’m trying to juggle my part-time job with my school work. It’s been rather hectic for these past few weeks, but it’s fine now.

Clarissa: Ah, I see. I’m glad to hear that you’re coping well. As for me, I am currently only occupied with my studies in university. I have not found a job just yet.

Clementine: I see… Say, do you want to grab a cup of coffee or something? I know a place just around the block there.

Clarissa: Sure! I am on my lunch break, so I am all right with it.

(The two girls went for the morning coffee at a local café.)

Clarissa: Ooh, looks nice! It’s at least better than your typical coffee chain, in terms of atmosphere. The prices are a little too high though.

Clementine: Yep! I guess that’s what happens to the little guys when they have to try to compete against the larger corporations. They need to make up for it with the higher prices.

Clarissa: The taste isn’t that bad though. So, what brings you to this part of the town?

Clementine: Ah, nothing much. Got this little errand from my company, to deliver this package to Mr. Alan.

Clarissa: Is it like a courier company?

Clementine: Not really. Mainly office work where it typically involves me sorting out the paperwork.

Clarissa: Hmm, no offense, but is it why you’re only doing this part time? Your full time job will be much more adventurous than this, isn’t it?

Clementine: You know me so well, Clarissa! Yes, I am going to be a freelance photographer. I will then travel around the world and take photos.

Clarissa: Sounds nice to me! As for me, I thought about becoming a pilot, like a commercial one. Unfortunately, my fear of heights literally grounded my dreams.

Clementine: Maybe you can still join the Air Force? As in, maybe you can become their technician or something like that?

Clarissa: I’ll pass. It will just make me feel more envious towards those that have, you know, no fear of heights?

Clementine: Hmm, fair point. So, you’re planning to take up botany? You have a love for flowers too!

Clarissa: Yep, that’s what I am thinking of too. Botanist Clarissa, at your service!

Clementine: Don’t you want to overcome your fear though?

Clarissa: I really tried, Clementine. It did not work too well; every time I subjected myself to great heights and falls, like bungee jumping, I nearly ended up getting a heart attack. It never improves.

Clementine: That’s quite unfortunate. Hope that one day you will be able to overcome that.

Clarissa: Thanks, Clementine! And thanks for the meet up today! It’s quite a meaningful one. I hope you get the full-time job that you’re looking for.

Clementine: Same here. Goodness, it’s been a few months since we last met each other. Let’s hope to see each other again in the future.

Clarissa: Farewell for now, and see you soon!

Clementine: Goodbye!

Read factbook

Valkyrie Sprak is spoken by 99.5% of the Valentian populace, while a good percentage of the foreigners were also taking up classes. Due to the combined nature of it, it was considered rather difficult for an outsider to comprehend it fully, though it is still possible that the person will be able to grasp a few words here and there if they speak one of the many languages used in it. Overall, Valkyrie Sprak is considered a Category VII language, taking at least a good 7000 class hours (291 RL Earth days of continuous listening to learning materials) to master it.



Religion

Breakdown of the population by religion.

The overall religious composition of Valentine Z has changed over the years from the pre-Valentian era, with many religions seeing a lot more followers, while others have seen a sharp or a large decrease. Buddhism, (specifically Theravada Buddhism), has seen a large increase in the number and percentage of followers, from the old-world era’s 7% to a 26.0%, as well as Shinto, Sufism, Confucian, and Baha’I, amongst many others, seeing an overall increase, though not as large as Buddhism itself. On the other hand, Christianity has seen a halving of its number of followers, from a former 33% down to a 16.0%. Islam took the largest drop from 24.1% to 1.1% of the world population, with most of it followers converting to Sufism. Hinduism also took a drop from 15% to 1.1%, though not as large as many other religions.

The main drive for the change of religion is largely unknown, though several small reasons have been found – from Valentians abandoning the religions of the olden days, to following the modernised religions that would be more suited for following in the Valentian era. It was initially pointed to the lack of religious and teaching material for the declining religions, but it was known that most of the artefacts, sacred books, and any other materials, made it in safe hands to Valentine Z; they simply lost the appeal, whatever they may be.

It is also of note that there was a death of BILLIONS of people, and the remaining 500,000 - 600,000, whilst still wondering about their uncertain future for the time being, would take up other religions from the media that they have. Backups that they have. The aforementioned deaths also means decrease of followers, and a total change of the demographics of religions as a whole. People were worried about their own future, religion became secondary to survival and hoping that Project Resolute/Terraforming would work. And with Valentine Z founded in 2000, the Valentians took up new religions, some of them changed and parted from their traditions. It became a bit too extreme that religions like, Islam and Hinduism, whilst still being practiced and accepted, have very small numbers, compared to their larger numbers of the past.

There was a slight increase in Satanism (specifically LaVeyan Satanism) to a 0.9% of the total Valentian population, though it was cited and clarified that its followers mean no harm to anyone else, and that they would simply like to follow their own sets of beliefs. This is also on the grounds that none of the religions can conduct animal or human sacrifices.

Due to the Valentian Laws promoting acceptance and discouraging religious defamations and arguments, every Valentian, regardless of the religious background, were known to be tolerant and compassionate towards one another, preferring to cast aside their differences to see each other as the fellow humans they are.



Race
The races of Valentine Z are diverse, having all of the 5 categories and in turn exercising acceptance towards one another regardless of race.

Due to the nature of some of the Valentians, there has been a differentiation between humans, and of other races, if possible. The known races of Valentine Z are as follows:

  • Human – American Indian or Alaska Native

  • Human – Asian

  • Human – Black or African American

  • Human – Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander

  • Human – White

  • Artificial Intelligence – Along with the humans, they too were given the same amount of rights, though a random check can be done in order to check for tempered bots or sabotaging units.

  • Unknown – The Void – This only consists of one 2nd Lt. Sylvie so far, and given her status as an otherworldly person, it is difficult to determine her exact origin, while she still deserves the rights of a Valentian.

  • Anthromorphic Animals – These are characters such as 2nd Sgt. Kostas and 4th Sgt. Harris, non-human species whereby they have managed to achieve human-level intelligence through a medium. The medium is not the utmost importance, and instead the emphasis is given on the fact that they are as human as one can be, mentally speaking, and thus were given the same rights.



Largest Cities
Note that while the country of each of the cities are given, they are all ultimately under Valentine Z as of the time of writing.
